One of the things that people often overlook when shopping for a cruise is the incredible value offered in the luxury segment. On the Yachts of Seabourn, for example, you’ll never sign a check for a speciality coffee or bottled water, beer, spirits or even a glass of champagne, and that’s true champagne by the way. Seabourn doesn’t pour sparkling wine, unless requested.
Your stateroom welcome comes with a bottle of champagne and a stocked bar, and you’ll never pay for items that you consumer from the mini-bar. You’ll also enjoy new release movies, which non-luxury cruise lines charge for, from the comfort of your stateroom.
Dine free of charge at the specialty restaurants, and no need to fret about gratuities, which are also included in the cost of the cruise.
I agree about the value of an all-inclusive luxury cruise, especially on Seabourn. If cruisers on mainline cruises would tally up all of their incidental expenses and add it to the cost of the cruise, they might be surprised that the same amount of money could have paid for a luxury cruise. Well, perhaps not all the offerings, but certainly on crossings and other well-priced itineraries.
